Eyebrows the Internet


Due to the lack of places offering threading in Leeds I ventured to the original lash & nail bar in Leeds corn exchange. I have to say I did originally ask for my brows to be threaded but the girl who does threading wasn't in that day so the lady I was speaking to said she could wax and tint them...I was dubious, I really wanted to move away from waxing but then she said if I didn't like them she wouldn't charge me as she was that confident I would love the results! SOLD!


So I sat down in the beautician chair and she tinted away - at this point I would normally tell the person that I didn't want to go too dark as it freaks me out a little but she had already said that she wouldn't take them all the way black. She already had my trust so I let her work her magic!

While we were waiting for the tint to take we were talking about threading and waxing and I told her about the debarcle with my last threading experience at Glow. She was gobsmacked and told me that she did go on a threading course but just didn't feel confident in doing it and that's why she didn't offer it. She's been waxing for over 10 years and knows she's good at it - so why change? Very good point indeed.

With all tinting and waxing done she filled in part of my brows (part of my right brow just seems to not have any hair) with a MAC pencil. She also showed me how to do it at home too as I've never been very confident in pencilling in brows! I also stopped by the MAC counter en route home to pick up a new eyebrow pencil too *oops*

I'm super happy with the shape and the result, she really did know what she was doing and put my mind at ease. Would definitely go back and recommend it all Leeds ladies to pay a visit!




So here's the result. P.S I'm in a pumpkin at Alton Towers :)

A very crafty day out: Annie Sloan workshops at The Craft Loft

In Newcastle, Co. Down, hidden above Annetts Childrenswear is a hidden gem. The Craft Loft is the love child of Phyllis Annett who after years of helping to run the successful childrens clothing shop with her husband - his family's business for several generations - was looking for a new creative outlet; something that would bring business and life to the upstairs of their gorgeous converted townhouse. 
And so The Craft Loft was born.
Myself and a few other Northern Irish bloggers were invited down to sample one of the various workshops offered by Phyllis and her family. Whether you want to paint a piece, learn how to decoupage, upholster furniture, or build your own lamps, Phyllis and her family have a number of wonderful classes for you to take all based around the use of the famous Annie Sloan chalk paints and fabrics. I opted for the Paint A Piece class because I wanted to start with the basics of chalk paint and furniture decoration but also because my flat is tiny and packed t…

Matcha Madness: The Body Shop Matcha Tea Face Mask Review

My name is Bex and I am a mask addict! I love masks. Cream, clay, mud, peeling, sheet, cellulose, nourishing... you name it and I love it! I recently spent an evening with the amazing staff from The Body Shop Belfast learning about all their key products and celebrating their cruelty free status and at the end of the night I was very kindly gifted their Japanese Matcha Tea pollution clearing mask - I was delighted! 

We all know that the world has gone Matcha crazy but beyond an occasional frappe from a well known coffee house my main experiences have been with Matcha flavour cakes from my local asian supermarket. They are seriously amazing and the lightest sponge I've ever eaten but it doesn't exactly scream "good for you".

Thankfully, apart from being seriously tasty Matcha is ridiculously good for you. Traditionally brewed as a simple green tea it is packed full of antioxidants - 10 times the amount in normal green teas as you are consuming the precious ground up lea…

A hearty autumn meal and BBC Good Food Show Competition

As October draws to a close the clocks have turned back and the dark nights have settled in. Carved pumpkins are glowing on doorsteps and, as I walk home from work, the air outside smells of burning wood fires and home baked goodies; as if all of Belfast collectively decided that tonight was going to be as cosy as possible. I love this time of year. 

In the aftermath of Halloween and the looming onslaught of pre-Christmas sales it’s easy to get a bit fed up of November. I mean what is there to do? And with no such celebration as America's Thanksgiving over here what is there to eat?!? Well thankfully there is still a foodie event to keep us going through what could have been an utterly boring culinary month...
The BBC Good Food Show returns to the Belfast Waterfront Hall this November (10th – 12th) and thanks to lovely folks at MCE we have an exciting opportunity which means that you could be seeing your favourite TV chefs such as Nadiya Hussain (Friday) and The Hairy Bikers (Sunday…
